|Arcsecond Positions of UGC Galaxies|
We present accurate B1950 and J2000 positions for all confirmed galaxiesin the Uppsala General Catalog (UGC). The positions were measuredvisually from Digitized Sky Survey images with rms uncertaintiesσ<=[(1.2")2+(θ/100)2]1/2,where θ is the major-axis diameter. We compared each galaxymeasured with the original UGC description to ensure high reliability.The full position list is available in the electronic version only.
|Isophotal shapes of early-type galaxies. II - The Perseus Cluster|
We present the results of an isophotal shape analysis of a sample of 91early-type galaxies belonging to the Perseus Cluster, using CCD R and Vimages obtained in very good seeing conditions. This survey uncoversfine details in the structure of a large percentage of these objects,including disks, bars and even spiral arms, so that a large variety ofmorphological types is proposed. A very conservative upper limit for thepercentage of galaxies of the whole sample showing no deviations fromellipticity is given to be 20 percent. A lower limit for the detectionof bars among galaxies newly classified as S0's or spirals is about 30percent.
|The dynamics of rich clusters of galaxies. II - The Perseus cluster|
The dynamics of the Perseus cluster are analyzed using self-consistentequilibrium analytical models. Using existing data in the literatureplus new radial velocities reported here, composite surface density andvelocity dispersion profiles are derived. These profiles have beencompared with dynamical models described by Kent and Gunn (1982). Thebest fit suggest the presence of a significant degree of anisotropy inthe velocity distribution: galaxy orbits are constrained to pass withina radius of seven cluster radii, or 1.3 deg of the cluster center. ForHubble constant = 50, a core radius of 340 kpc 11 arcmin and a mass tovisual light ratio M/L = 300 are found. Using these results, X-rayobservations of the intracluster medium in Perseus are reanalyzed. Apreviously noted discrepancy between the observed temperature of the hotgas and the cluster velocity dispersion is reduced but not eliminated. Acooling accretion flow previously deduced to exist in this cluster isshown to extend to only about one-third of the cluster radius.
